I FEEL THAT I GOT EVERYTHING I EXPECTED, AND BEYOND – SOHAIB KHAN
"The way the course was delivered, the style, the approach and especially the content completely matched the target."
Sohaib Khan is a flight test engineer from Pakistan working on flight data analysis & flight dynamics, and performance prediction before flight test. In July 2016 he participated in the course Aircraft Performance: Physics and Simulation.
What was your motivation for enrolling in this course?
As a flight test engineer, I looked for a strong understanding of aircraft performance. Due to my busy schedule, I was unable to find the time to attend any courses or join university classes. Therefore, an online course was the perfect choice for me. Online learning was a new experience for me as I have never taken any online courses before. But I am happy that I made the right choice!
How would you describe your online learning experience?
Overall it was wonderful. I learned a lot from the experienced professionals that were on the course. I was able to fill in the gaps in my knowledge of aircraft performance. Also, the way the course was delivered, the style, the approach and especially the content completely matched the target (I particularly enjoyed the interviews with the test pilot). I found the interactive sessions and the communication with other students from all around the world surprisingly satisfying. I feel that I got everything I expected, and beyond.
I also very much appreciated the great support given by Dr. Voskuijl and the other course team members. They made concepts and equations that at first seemed difficult to grasp much easier to understand and use. The course was very well organized and the communication with other students was both helpful and collaborative. I look forward to participating in their next course!
